Having some problems with "cheated" flights.

Post by Oliver » Thu Mar 13, 2008 9:57 pm

Dear administrator,

I'm having some problems with some Flights on my airline.
Hernán, one of my pilots, accidentally marked a flight as cheated, although he did it perfect and wasn't a "cheated" flight.
The Flight is this one:
SBFL SAEZ Mar 11, 21:13 94 B763 669nm Hernan Prezzia 100% 7.554.500v$!

And today I accidentally marked another flight as cheated, when of course it wasn't.
The flight:
SAEZ SPIM Mar 13, 15:57 103 B763 1705nm Mauro Felix 100% -18.258.000v$!

Is there any way of reversing the situation???

Thank you very much, and sorry for the inconvenient....

All possible cheat flights are reviewed by an administrator before they either deleted as cheats or accepted as legitimate flights. In the case of the three possible cheat flights by your airline I just checked them and they all look like good flights so they are fine.

Now, I had marked one of my flights as cheated, I somehow got dinged for not even landing at my planned airport when FS crashed, I don't know if I made any comments on the flight but it got deleted none the less. It all seemed to be automated.

There is a routine in the system that will automatically mark "suspicious" flights for us to review. ~1/3 of those marked automatically are due to either FS or FlyNET issues (i.e. Crash-to-Desktop, hangup, scenery issues, etc). ~1/3 of these are due to very short sectors (less than 1 hour) which the system asks the Admins to check automatically to be sure they're suppsoed to be that short, and the last 1/3 are real cheated flights where pilots used one of a number of methods in an attempt to bypass the system rules. The first and third reasons will usually get deleted (cheated flights have an addition of also bearing a reputation penalty to the offender) while the second will usually get "approved" and stay in the database.
